    what's good here, you ask? not much. don't waste your time. premade food that's cold when it gets to you, mystery meat and rock hard biscuits. sad to see pleasant, competent waitstaff go to waste.

    Atypical airport bistro that doesn't feel or taste terminalèsque at all. A Croque-Madame and a Chardonnay will make you feel you accidentally boarded on Air France and landed in Paris. C'est la vie!

    this place really went down the tubes recently. mediocre food, ketchup in a plastic cup and a plastic knife to go with a regular fork. terrible.

    Chicken paillard is good. Ask for salad with half the dressing or on the side--it comes heavily dressed.

    Ask for less dressing on the frisée. With the egg, dressing isn't required

    I try to fly Jet Blue just so I can eat and drink here. The Croque Madame is the best anywhere. Drinks are decent though the booze selection is somewhat lacking. I concur with Maille, Jeff is da bomb!

    This place has the beat bar man in New York City. Take a bow Jeff. Also does pretty decent food.

    Waitstaff is incredibly friendly, prices are comparable to NYC restaurants, I overheard several people say the coffee was delicious, and a great place to make you feel like you're not at the airport.

    If you like bacon, it is worth taking a flight to JFK just to have the frisee salad.

    Like a smaller Balthazar (they’re owned by the same people). Try the Steak Sandwich, The Salade Nicoise or the Sauteed Prawn Provencal.
